Reckless driving by an unlicensed teen kills a woman on her first date

An unlicensed teen caused a fatal car accident.

Around 2:10 pm KST on February 11, 18-year-old, Jeonran over a couple on a sidewalk in Daejeon. The teen did not have a driver's license, and the accident occurred with a borrowed vehicle.

Park, the 28-year-old woman, passed away while Cho, her 29-year-old boyfriend, was hospitalized in a critical condition. Jeon and his friend, who was in the passenger seat, are both receiving treatment at the hospital. There was no alcohol consumption involved in the accident. 

The couple, who met each other while traveling to Europe several years back, recently made their relationship official. The day of the accident was revealed to be their first date. 

Park was an elementary school teacher in Seoul, and Cho was an office worker in Changwon. The couple decided to meet in Daejeon, a midway point of both of their residences. 

Meanwhile, the police are continuing the investigation into Jeon's reckless driving.

WTF? THEY JUST GOT TOGETHER AFTER MEETING YEARS AGO ON A TRIP. THEY JUST BECAME A THING, AND THEN THIS? This is actually super sad. All accidents are sad but this, by far, is one of the most saddest to me. They just started dating. Could you imagine knowing each other for years but being scared to make it a thing and your friends nag you too, and when you finally do become a couple, and on your first date, your s.o dies and you're in the hospital in CRITICAL condition? Like....Oh my god.... i'd be legit depressed for the rest of my life and never socialize ever again.

Condolences to Miss Park's family, how tragic, so sad, bad. That teen got away with murder in his young life but his irresponsibility that cost that young woman her life, and now as her boyfriend hopefully recovers from his injuries will be difficult for him since he'll be thinking of the circumstances that finally brought them together and then horrifically this happens. What's the chances of that happening during the week of Valentine's Day. This teen has the rest of his life to remember this tragic accident that he caused someone to lose their life. Who knows, maybe it was a start of a bright future hopefully with her boyfriend finally ready to possibly commit to one another & celebrate. Being reckless, inattentive, possibly speeding will maybe cost him to lose a chance of having a license to drive. Wonder if drugs, alcohol was involved? This reminds me of a recent accident here in Honolulu where 3 people lost their lives waiting for the light to change so they could proceed to cross the street within the crosswalk at a busy intersection. Driver lost control of his truck speeding, without license, no permission to use the borrowed truck, drunk, homeless leaving a young woman dead visiting from Japan, young doctor in his 30's planning to have children with his wife of 3 years, another visitor young man visiting from Midwest with his girlfriend; as well as injuring 3 others in the same crosswalk recovering in the hospital. He jumps the curb then disaster, so tragic. What is going on here?

well this is sad.. their FIRST date, after meeting in europe several years back. TBH i would put that teen in jail but then again it isn't a murder it was an accident which ended up killing a person. that teen will probably get some year for probation and driving ban. Still think that the teen should go to jail immediately

This story is just so sad... almost seems like a romantic movie with a sad ending. It was also eerie how the timing of everything when down, It looked like they were the only ones walking on the street and they just happened to be at the wrong spot when the car lost control. Prayers for them and their families.

I know what you mean, being at the wrong place at the wrong time so to speak, so strange, sad & tragic. What's the chances of that happening to a young innocent couple finally able to get that first date arranged then this happens.

Damn, this is so upsetting. They had no chance to save themselves.

There isn't much to investigate, anyway. He was driving like an insane jerk in the wrong place and he lost control. Judging by the video, most probably because of a sudden and excessive acceleration while overtaking that car. That kind of oversteer is typical of powerful rear wheel drive cars, and it can be really brutal.

But who lends a Mustang to an idiot who doesn't even have a driving license?

And what kind of crazy idiot drives such an expensive and borrowed car that way?

Spoiled rich "kids"?

once again showing how low you sexist scum can sink, with your longan lychee account you made fun of jonghyuns death and now with your new account you desperately want to act nice, just for some likes, while your stupidity didnt even allow you to hide your true personality for long behind your new account, same stupidity that outed yourself behind anpanman and bangdaejae too...

That should be a involuntary manslaughter or second degree murder charged. He was intentionally driving a car unlicensed and he probably didn't even know how to drive since it resulted in such a bad accident. This young couple just got together, and she was killed on their first date. So sad and so many lives ruined from a stupid decision.

I know that people are going to hate me after saying this but...I usually don't get sad or mad reading these types of stories. [I know I am a bad person] But... This story moved me. I am in shock. It was their first date. I mean c'mon. Why did this have to happen on their first date. I am not saying that it should've happened later, no, it shouldn't have happened at all. But really; on their first date. Aish... My condolences to her family/friends/loved ones right now. I am sorry for your loss, I bet she was a great lady to be around. I am shook....

I'm so glad he's a teen so he won't get punished severely, he will be with his family and friends soon to enjoy life. He will come out of this as better person, he's been through a lot.

Imagine that... A car suddenly comes out of nowhere and runs both of you over... You wake up finding out that your girlfriend is dead... I'm kinda scared to walk the streets now... who knows... a car driven by an irresponsible 18 y/o might come out and run me over...

You know some streets the way it's also created or designated, they have no curbing to speak of, it just blends from the roadside right on to a pathway where a sidewalk would have been, it's an accident ready to happen too. It is scary and you're not even crossing the road, you're just walking on the side of it.

What a tragedy, and they were just going on a date and enjoying each other's company.

I wonder if the kid who drove was just acting all cool and shit and just lost control. Like come on, be sensible and be safe on the road at all times.

Think the article mentioned that it was a borrowed vehicle? Didn't belong to he driver and worse yet so irresponsible to even get a proper driver's license. Hope they weren't drinking or on drugs. Notice kids nowadays, start drinking really young. From the looks of that vehicle, it did look sporty, possible the driver maybe showing off, inattentive driving trying to look cool then before you know it, drives into that couple walking on the sidewalk ending the life of that young school teacher, how is that to happen?
